Description :
In 1919, Father William J. Conway from Edmundston is asked to build a church for the backs of Saint-Jacques and Edmundston. He has the opportunity to highlight his exceptional diplomat and builder skills that will characterize him further in his long and successful career. He organized a meeting with the villagers to determine the site of the future church. Father Conway was really satisfied with the choice of the villagers since it was his favorite one. The church was erected on one of the most picturesque scenery of Madawaska.
